Paul's Cottage is wonderful
"We have been coming to Paul's Cottage for many years. The cottage satisfied a dream we had
for a long time. We have been coming to Maine since the middle 1950's and the idea of
buying a place on the ocean in Maine had become a strong wish but we could never
afford it. Later, with improved financial circumstances, one could contemplate buying a
place in Maine, however, then there was simply not enough time to maintain and worry
about additional property. Paul's cottage is a perfect answer. It is in an absolutely beautiful
location on the water on one of the loveliest places on the East coast. The place is better
equipped with amenities than our house in Newton and best of all, when things age and
break, we find them repaired and often improved the next year. We cannot think of a

"We had an absolutely wonderful stay with Suze and Tod, and would definitely stay with them again if we are in the area. The space was exactly as advertised, and we really appreciated that it was clean and bright. The kitchen was very well stocked with utensils and appliances, which was great, since we prefer to stay in rather than eat out. Suze and Tod knew just what we wanted in terms of interaction - they were there if we needed them, but they gave us the space we needed to relax on our vacation.
There was one especially wonderful feature to our stay which is Tod and his garden of fresh vegetables! My wife is a vegetarian, and I do not eat much meat. When we arrived Suze gave us a list of what Tod had in the garden and asked us to let them know what we wanted. We chose the lettuce, mixed greens, arugula, chives, mustard greens and tarragon. Tod had meticulously cleaned them and put them by our door. They were wonderful, and we continued to enjoy them and think about Suze and Tod as we continued our trip to other locations, enjoying a wonderful salad here, or a yummy sandwich with fresh greens along the side of the road.
One other thing we appreciated is that they had taken the time to label things and leave directions about how to take care of their property. As guests, we want to take care of their place, and it is much easier when you know what to do.
We highly recommend both Arcadia Meadow and Suze and Tod."

"We stayed here with our two young children for a week while exploring Acadia and Bar Harbor for the first time. The cottage is beautifully decorated, clean, and very comfortable -- perfect for either a family or a couple looking for a get-away. The small garden and balcony are also very charming, and the neighbors are friendly (as are the owners). But most importantly, the location cannot be beat. Even with young children, we walked into town several times a day. Wonderful restaurants are close by (as are the farmer's market, playgrounds, etc.). The location is also a great base for exploring Acadia. We definitely plan to stay here again!"
